So a C# or VB.NET to MSIL compiler comes with which version of
Windows? AFAIK it doesn't come with Windows XP, and I suppose it
doesn't come with Windows .NET Server (beta) either.

Also there's no so thing as a Windows Scripting Language, you probably
mean Windows Scripting Host, which AFAIK comes with two scripting
languages (JScript and VBScript).
